Nevada City Real Estate

Nevada City

Nevada City sits just about an hour away from Sacramento, close enough for commuting convenience yet far enough away from the city to preserve its quiet charm. A historically rich area dating back to the California gold rush, there are nearly 100 nationally registered historic sites and nearly 20 registered landmarks in the city alone. Because of the local charm and history, homes for sale in Nevada City are continuously in high demand.

Citizens in Nevada City have made it a mission to preserve the fascinating heritage and maintain many of the original buildings. Locals come together to celebrate the storied past with annual events and festivals. Also, tourists come from miles around to experience the renowned Victorian Christmas events each winter. Especially noteworthy are the Soapbox Derby Races, Summer Nights festivals, and movies that have been filmed in what many describe as a real-life Christmas card.

Living in Nevada City, California

Today, Nevada City has become a haven for the artistic. The gorgeous landscape and historical Victorian buildings enhance the burgeoning arts scene. Regularly, Nevada City wineries host art showings and open mics. Not to mention the street performers who can be found up and down Broad Street on a nightly basis.

Enormous fir, pine, oak, and cedars are part of the eclectic mix of trees that decorate the area. They provide much needed relief from the warm Nevada City summers and protect the valley below from the sometimes heavy snowfall over the winters. Another of Nevada City’s beauties is Deer Creek, running right underneath popular downtown streets all year round.
